Nice, quiet and many animals
I really enjoyed getting to know the owners (Yolanda and Klaas) on a personal level. They also seemed to enjoy getting to know me and my family on a personal level. They were especially attentive to my elderly parents, who were 85 and 81 years old. The surrounding area was beautiful, peaceful, and exactly what I hoped for. Being close to Amsterdam, Schiphol, Volendam, Enkhuizen and Alkmar was also a big plus. I didn't plan on swatting so many flies. I should have expected it though, considering we were on a farm.
The b&b was clean and in a good location. Room advertised as 'Apartment'. It is a Studio. no separate bdrm. Walls thin & shared w/the owner's residence. Office-sized copy machine, fax & business phone for owner's use is in the room. The 'Buffet Breakfast' is a few raw eggs & other food items in room upon arrival. Owner does not 'prepare'. No 'Playground'. There is 1 trampoline, 3ft off the ground w/out an enclosure. Pool is a pool kit in a field, surrounded by an old fence w/out a cover to keep clean. Pony rides 15euro for 30mins of riding. An 'appointment' must be made in advance. Warned that pony used is unpredictable. 'Dutch dinner' not available. Feeding/nursing farm animals not available.
Nice small farm, interesting for chilrdren. Good kitchen possibilities in the apartment. Very nice hosts. Warm welcoming with delicious cake!!! Hosts could warn about the airplane noise... Although windows are soundproof, it can still be heard.
